|My wife and I are so excited to have Lucy, and 18 week old Irish Setter! In the picture she is 9 weeks old, so I should put up a more recent one. Man, these pups grow fast! She drives you crazy one second with their nipping and getting into everything, but the next second she cuddles up to you on the couch, and melts your heart! We could not be happier with her. Although, I would not mind if she stopped biting/mouthing/nipping at our hands. Overall she's been great with potty training, just a handful of accidents around the house, which were more our fault for not paying close enough attention. She has never had an accident in her crate or playpen though!
She is a handful, and will continue to be one, but we're prepared for that. I wanted a dog that could go hiking with me, although I have to wait until next year for that. She'll also be a great running partner.
We live on the water in Gig Harbor (near Tacoma, WA), and she loves the beach and all that it has to offer. We do have to watch her closely, because she likes to find dead crabs and play with them. She's also likes the water a lot and has started swimming!
I think we did a fairly decent job of socializing her, especially the first month we had her. She loves people, and other dogs! Basically she loves everything and is a sweetheart! Irish Setters are supposed to be like that, so I shouldn't be surprised!
Anyway, I just wanted to introduce her!
